Happy belated Birthday to Dawn

Good morning all! We have survived the Blizzard of 2013 up here in the North!  Lots of snow and lots of shoveling, but we did it.

Last week was Dawn's birthday and I wanted to make something homemade and creative for her, because she is always coming up with super creative things for us!!  So I remembered a tile post she had posted a while back and I thought I can do that.  I creeped on her FB page and picked out 8 pictures and then I followed her directions (which were awesome)!

" I got the tumbler tiles at Home Depot for about $4 for a pack of 8. They are just shy of 4" x 4". I printed the pics out at 3.5" x 3.5" after creating an edge on them in Photoshop Elements. I put a rub-on word on each of them, attached them to the tiles (after dusting them off) with a thin layer of Mod Podge and then applied 3 coats of Mod Podge (matte finish) to each, letting each layer dry before adding the next. I cut squares of cork for the bottoms to protect surfaces that they are on because they are very rough and heavy. They still need to be sprayed with 3-5 coats of acrylic sealer to make them completely water proof"

I love the one od Dawn when she and her siblings were little. She loved the gift!!


  1. these are super special and just want to wish dawn a late happy birthday. hugs

  2. These came out great. Laurie had told me how excited she was to make these for Dawn, so I've been dying to see the finished project. Awesome! This really is a perfect idea for a gift for any occassion. Nice job :)

  3. "Loved" isn't the word!! More like "adored"!! Laurie wrapped each one individually and I actually started crying at about the second one, thinking not only about all the great memories with each picture, but the thoughtfulness that went into this gift. Super special and I will treasure them always! Thanks you again! ♥♥♥

  4. These are AWESOME!!!! WOW Laurie...such a GREAT birthday present!!
